Hi new scholars!

Can't believe I haven't done one for ages, so here goes:

⚕️medical student who is really enjoying it at the moment

🚑 uni-wise, interested in pre-hospital/emergency medicine

🔬 casually interested in and social determinants of health and 🎮 narrative-based games

Do I know any trans or enby lyricists who have pieces they'd like me to set to music?

I'd really like to write something for the choir I'm in, but words do not come to me as easily as notes.

Looking for #reading recommendations as I want to get something a tad lighter for when I finish the Sholokhov tome I'm reading.

I'd like to get back into reading more SFF, and in particular would be interested in fantasy recs with settings/authors outside (pseudo) W Europe as a cultural setting.

Fire away! (Recommend your own books too if you're a writer by all means).

Hi scholar friends! 😎

Releasing something in a little while which I've been working on for almost a year (!!)

We're hoping to submit it for a public engagement award as well...

Anybody on the fediverse have t-shirt makers they like? cost and quality matter... Customink was OK but expensive.

Scholars, are there actually non-Google alternatives to Google Scholar?

halp, when we were introduced to the juniors in this department for placement, they were ALL white men

Met with supervisor, and it seems we are at least spared daunting statistical analysis 👍

nostrildamus, who smelled the future

The wet’suwet’en/unist'ot'en first nation peoples of Canada are fighting tooth and nail against the pipeline. They're literally defending their reservation. They've been battling the Canadian government, pipeline surveyers, and police, who've tried to force themselves onto their reservation for years, and are now being threatened with forced removal them from their lands. I stand in solidarity with my brothers and sisters across the border. This is illegal. This is war.

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"A Mastodon profile you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
